Awesome insight!

Zebulon always has this deep insight into how things are made, and he makes it seem so simple to whomever is listening. That is the sign of a true connoisseur, because he knows the subject matter so well, when he breaks it down it’s just in a few easy steps. Absolutely love it. And, he brings outstanding energy to top it all off.
